[laughter] >> that is a difficult question. i think malala is an average girl but something which is -- [laughter] something extraordinary about her machine ever agrees with me. [laughter] she always jokes and she is very humorous. she had so many meetings on the stage. one special quality she has that she doesn't create a mistake again -- i mean, if she has made a mistake in life that once so she doesn't repeat her mistakes. she's very respectful to her teachers and her elders. >> i would ask it does start with you is when you were in a girls' school in pakistan, malala come attended an i have to announce what the view this passion for education because i think it is when you are the person who is on the bottom who want to rise but it is another when you are on the top and who want to share the privileges that you have as a man and a household. so where did you get your passion for the girls' education? >> basically i was born in a society where girls were ignored they are in the developing and poor countries. the wo

with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is unacceptable behavior, and i am often fearful when we try to develop a black letter law if you have all these factors and bullying and you fell outside and that works okay in the courtroom. right? as prosecutors we need clear understanding of the laws to understand whether we have a criminal violation or not, but i am fearful we maybe overly legalistic and the way we deal with on a daily basis and we need to approach this by a global perspective respecting people and understanding we have the same rights and obligations and starting with the adults and i go back to the adults because the adults really have to tow the line here. they really have to walk the talk. i cannot tell you how often i of involved in large mentoring efforts and now in two different places, in l.a. and arizona. i cannot tell you how often the teachers are the ones that set the tone whether we have a respectable environment or and
who we are as we're trying to recruit people. he want to know what the board of education plans are to promote the b cc as you're looking to help us be a positive part of the team working with english language are learners along with pack we want to them to know how the promotion of the b cc as well as the teaching to continue to promote the b cc. i know we're on the we are talking about and posting our agenda and what else can we do it promote the b cc. we'd a lot of the board members to come and some folks have come and we've changed our meetings so i think there was a conflict with one thought i think it was one of your subcommittee meetings and we can be flexible and is if there's another conflict while try to resolve those. we courage the b o e commissioners to regularly check in with our appointees. but it would be great if you regularly check in with the people you've appointed to keep a finger other than the pulse of the b cc. number 2 we instructional with timely translations. it's our right and responsibility to ask for translations as better can be asking for translat
empathize a lot of he parents and now we hear that the educators can be brought to the table too. i'm wondering if it would strengthen the delake and also you talked about your concerns about the members being appointed by next august. maybe it would reach tout out to the delake. i think those are two committees we want to see that are strong and a represent our voice of english learners. so i think when i read a report like this you said there were only 5 members there and delake could be lacking los also in strength. i'm concerned they're not up to the full advocates for our students. this is where i come from. i'm not suggesting it only requesting that. it came to mind >> sorry i'm so special because i'm charged with data over 6 years. so i'm not sure i will understand all but delake is a long-term problem because the families are from the elementary school school it's me. and those 92 no new face coming. and another problem is the bbc person. it's a lot of information go back to school talk to the parents and for the policy what do you do and a talking for your school the paren
privatized. all of the higher education is being privatized. all through the uc system. how do you run a modern state with tax cuts? we resort to desperate, back last november, we were asked to vote to make four indian casinos in san diego county pony up money. i thought this was a joke. they voted to do it. now, the governor proposes to borrow against future revenues. how did they deal with these social problems when the economic problems were far worse than what we can imagine today? this is from larry halprin's. and it has these quotes from roosevelt on the wall. he said in one of his talks to the people, "the test is not whether we have more, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little". it's a different philosophy than that which we have become used to. what i am going to show you is a lost civilization. it's a strange place. and yet, it becomes oddly familiar after a while because we built it and use it every day without knowing it. it has been buried. the living new deal project is like an archaeological dig. we are going after the new deal in california, but h
throughout the country. education was the gateway. access to education would provide a better future for the children. today that belief remains the same. education is a pathway for future success. however access to high quality education still remains an illusions to many children. too many african american and other people of color remain segregated in other schools and determined desperate and in later life. a huge gap in problems across the country. add to that the concept of unconscious bias, low expectations and high expulsion and suspension rates and it's so many reasons why they fall below the bar. even in san francisco where we have the highest performing schools we have the highest achievement gap among african american and latino students. we need to invest more in the future of our young people. in 1964, dr. king said, the richest nation on earth has never allocated sufficient schools to allocate teachers. we squander funds on highways, on the pursuit of recreation, on the over abundance of over kill arm meant but we pop rise education. even those these words were 50 year
and sometimes, we have a educate people who are scared, you know, about the changes that are happening in the community. that's often what we have to bear with but i'd like to think that's something we can do and people who are attended e opposed can work hard to meet the people who are doing a lot of great work in the neighborhood. so i'll be supportive of this resolution here today. i will not be - i'm not in favor of changing the languages or stabilizing it for more information. my experience with the homeless camp so over the years. i'm concerned the count is being inaccurate and i find the homeless numbers is very sound and its something i give a lot of creed dance too. i'm surprised that the numbers are highway. i hear all the time about the homeless people in the streets. people have access to food, bombards and a place to sleep that can alleviate problems and a decrease in the impacts of homelessness there by having the facilities in place. i want to thank everyone for coming hero and touching envy heart. i want to entries, you know, i understand the concerns that have come up
their education to make sure that i could go on to finish high school and to go on to college and those great sacrifices i recognize. we have seen so many great leaders that have come up of the sfaisz sacrifices that parents have made. i want to call out some of the leaders (calling names) great organizations that have made incredible accomplishments lately we passed the due process for all ordinance board of supervisors that's because of the leaders of this community. today, we're honoring future leaders people who are macro great accomplishments in their education i want to call them up one-on-one on the stage. first (calling names) (clapping) he's a 12th grader he is was an stent day participate at marshall and it's now a part of the college came back program. he volunteered when it left marshall as a fifth grader he's currently a senior and continues to support marshall as a college bound ambassador. congratulations (clapping) okay. next i would call up an eight grader she demonstrates a willingness to help this is very rare to see she's a social leader. congratulations (clapping) next u
died. >>> the way people get an education is changing radically. the internet has made the traditional classroom or lecture hall unnecessary. one nonprofit group is offering children in the developing world and elsewhere a chance to receive a first-rate education free. the concept is catching on with top-notch schools. >> the american nonprofit organization ignited the growth of free online classes. the founder has recorded all kinds of educational videos. they include math, physics, and art and history. the videos are free. >> just because people like, i think, the conversational tone. >> this video help s students learn basic addition. >> so we go one, two, three, four. we ended up at 7. that was our answer. >> it has been played more than two million times. altogether, there are around 5,000 videos. most are for elementary and junior high school students. khan used to be an analyst for a hedge fund. then, young relatives in distant places asked him to teach them arithmetic. so he made a video and posted it on the web. that was how he started his career in online education. people fo
was also nominated by president obama to serve in her role as assistant secretary of education for civil rights and she was confirmed by the senate in may of 2009. as assistant secretary, ruslyn is assistant secretary arnie's duncan's primary advisor. before she joined the department of education she was vice president of the education trust in washington, dc and was the founding executive of education trust west in oakland. in these positions she advocated for public school students in california, focusing on achievement and opportunity gaps, improving can urriculum and instructional quality and ensuring quality education for everybody. she served as an advisor on education issues on a number of private ipbs institutions, she is a teacher, a lawyer, and a very influential voice on all policy matters. she was also passionate about ending this issue of bullying and bringing everyone together to stop this disturbing trend so please welcome assistant secretary for civil rights, ruslyn lee. as i said, our moderator is not always our lieutenant governor, of course he needs to introducti
their curious about it they can prototype it and there's a lot of educates out there you don't have to have moifldz dollars so all the tools to make that possible is at the core of what the maker movement is for me. so with respect to our company when i'm talking to the fcc about getting our licenses to communities with satellites in space we're a solid company not like a maker company but internally we're occurring we're full of engineers and scientists that have tools at the their disposal. so i think we would self-identify internally as markers. >> beware i think he's posed to answer this so chris has the title for his next book (laughter). >> the nature come punctuation. >> he has a book and if the employees know what's good for them it's next door. other questions from the audience, please. there's a microphone right there >> so we kind of all noticed how america communes 25 percent of the workforce whatever. i'm curious how you guys think about the maker movement whatever is effecting the way people consume and what's the introductory of how the maker movement is going and a can i
educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults willing it slow down enough to invite kids to sit down at the table with us and partner? do we have the courage to understand that inclusion takes time and we have have to work more diligently to i invite young people, particularly marginalized young people, to take part. >> you menti
a trump card. educational equity is still an unmet promise. bullying of lgbt in schools still needs to be cared for. immigration reform for undocumented workers who are making this country strong. i look forward to working with everyone here tonight to make all of those dreams come true. thank you very much. [ applause ] >> our next awardee is the homeless prenatal program. the homeless prenatal program is honored to present this award on behalf of 500 low income families who have a chance to dream about a better future for their children and determination to make that dream a reality. we accept this award on behalf of it's staff. many of whom are clients through tireless work. we have come a long way from the march on washington and we have a long way left to go. since 1963, a structural injustice remains. the poverty unjustly reflects the poverty and instability of our color. htp is committed to challenging these disparities by providing critical health and social services not only to seek as safety net but also empower families, with affordable housing and education and job train
transforming our education system as described as struggling in the past with a lot of different barriers and opening up to our effort to involve a larger picture of what our residents and their families really want to do in the great city of san francisco and how do we attract those families to stay here. i go to technology visits every tech tour tuesday and meet with thirty or 40 employees of those companies and many of them know their ipos won't come in like other families they want to be here and work in jobs by the first thing is what are we doing that the schools. that's the birthing sign of viechltd. the best investment is to create a family here because that means you've got fabricate in the way we've treated our schools and the private-public partnering we have. in addition the technology gap that sales force is helping us today with offer $1.7 million in the other person ipads and the tinge goes with it is the training of features tea administrators. that's similar to what auto deck zinc gesture offers. it's the support mechanisms. it's one thing to announce the gift bus it's th
involved in education. he used to be the police chief. now he is the district attorney, gascon. he had an idea about a junior academy that would take san francisco eans and give them skills to get into the academy. you can make a great living as a police officer. the same notion with the fire department. these are careers you don't normally think about when you are in high school. you often are relegated to a path to go to a four-year university. that is not for everyone. there is an opportunity for everyone to work. that is the main point i am trying to drive home. when we talk about the issues, the one that stands out for me is education, economic and work force of the element, stimulating the local economy. we have the third street merchant corridor and an opportunity to revitalize what i consider to be the main artery of the bayview district, of the southeast quarter. third street is a pretty long streak. from at&t park, it goes all the way to candlestick park. there is a lot of opportunity. don't squander that. we wanted to be a healthy mix that reflects the cultural history of th
in education and the empowerment through education. there is a certain resistlessness and get out of your comfort zone and explore other things. that's how i got here. the path is not easy it's taken 12 years to get a green card. it limits ones opportunity. first, it will take a long time before the h1 process will allow you to move before jobs and you can't start a business. it took me 9 months to start a business. i was so restless to start something so you take capable individuals who are smart and driven and you can't limit them. the comprehensive immigration reform everybody in this room agrees we have to pass high school immigration. but having being on the spotlight you can't really traffic or switch between companies and now imagine the population that's route rights and i think it is morally not acceptable. and the children thought they had a country but apparently the country doesn't want them. >> alexander your story. >> hello. i'm originally from columbia and i was back in columbus. i was in love with computers but we didn't have enough money. eventually this is 1994 i had ac
with our efforts to get folks to recycle, it is a great educational tool. since then, we have had 95 professional artists come through. >> how has the program changed over the years? how has the program -- what can the public has an artist engage with? >> for the most part, we worked with metal and wood, what you would expect from a program like ours. over the years, we tried to include artists and all types of mediums. conceptual artists, at installation, photographers, videographers. >> that has really expanded the program out. it is becoming so dynamic right now with your vision of interesting artists in gauging here. why would an artist when to come here? >> mainly, access to the materials. we also give them a lot of support. when they start, it is an empty studio. they go out to the public area and -- we call it the big store. they go out shopping, take the materials that, and get to work. it is kind of like a reprieve, so they can really focus on their body of work. >> when you are talking about recology, do you have the only sculpture garden at the top? >> it is based on work
particularly entrepreneurs. i want to get you to talk about the education and the world of the united states. what kind of impact if the immigration reform didn't happen what impact will it have >> in the short time the visas the h1 petition we're trying to find a replacement for that person in the united states it's difficult to find people with skills so we might enable them to set up their offices and build a team. >> i was going to say if you guys haven't checked out the start up report they've done things around the world. so everywhere the e go system is growing but if we don't fix the immigration issues then the other pavrts parts of the world like brazil and china and venture capita lifts have activity invest in other countries >> if it does happen have you seen the banner - we'll just get real sad. >> mayor lee. i think the recovery will not be fully for everybody. you'll have thirty to 50 thousand people in our city alone maybe 2 and a half million that don't talk about their health and they have to create things underground and that effects health safety and fiscal safety in ou
been an adventure and an education for me, so i keep going. i didn't know "the exorcist" would be a hit movie or "the french connection." i don't think it had much to do with me. you could cite a lot of reasons, but at the time there were no reasons. every studio passed on these films. many of them passed twice. how do you process when you get to this point in your life and you see you have done , how dot is now iconic you keep from sticking your chest out just a little bit? >> you know the great helosopher mike tyson said knocked somebody out in the first round. interviewed byas howard cosell, and after the fight, he said, what did you think of his plan to stay away from you, to keep shuffling away and occasionally try to jab you? how did you feel about the plan? tyson said, everybody got a plan until he get hit in the face. don't got a plan. that is my philosophy. that's the way it is. i had a plan to have everyone of my films be a colossal success, until i got hit in the face. then you pick up, try again, maybe fail again, but fail better. tavis: i am listening to you trying to figur
the country. because the data shared by our u.s. attorney, representatives from the department of education confirm if we don't do anything about it, 13 million kids will become victims again for another year. some 3 million kids across the country will decide it is better to leave their school grounds than to continue their education. there will be more stupblting of the emotional and educational growth of our kids. all across the bay, whether working here in san francisco or alameda or sonoma or santa clara county. i want to thank you law enforcement officials here, instructors, community advocates, people who are concerned about our kids, they are our future and i would love to see a new generation of kids who don't know what bully is, who are not victims, who don't have those scars. but we've got to do today is sharing in the best practices, to be encouraged by programs like our roof top school here in san francisco who has traded a 50-person ambassador class that will talk about this, that will invite other kids, school administrators who have received the support of our school site
faintly business. but education america went work out doubt from the best education to almost god awesome now. we still have the best education in america and quality out of the graduate school is great but national level education is required a lot of the work we do out of the lab is in the energy spates. at the scale you want to effect the economy one of the revolutions is going to be the transfer from a economist economy. there's a lot of manufacturing in that and we don't have policies on robotics to make those things. so things are much bigger in the maker movement in terms of impacting the economic we're not having consistent policy >> the carbon basis life form i'm concerned. >> you've been replaced by a robot. >> i have a couple of things one is at a simplistic level. there's this rhetoric we need to reforearm the defeat it's a global economy and when you look at the parts and supplies and protection policies that seems like a good idea until you realize you're using parts from all over the accruing world. and the granted program be reapplied into a national program that complo
